…a Reason for Prayer?

Romans 8:26 26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.  We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
     Sometimes when I pray, my mind gets lost or is not in focus and I have no idea why I am on my knees.  I remember to thank God for all His blessings and to pray for the ‘normal’ things I do each day.  But sometimes I have the overwhelming feeling of ‘is God really listening’ to me.  Or I wonder if I am praying selfishly – should I be praying for something else.
     That’s when I try to stop and listen to the Spirit inside me.  He knows what I need long before it comes to my mind.  He will intercede for me when I am too drained to think of anything myself.  And as He prays with me and through me, I am refreshed and comforted by His Spirit.
     We all need refreshment…some days more than others.  God will refresh us if only we will stop and allow Him too.
     My prayer is that I allow the Spirit to pray through me…that my prayer life grows and grows…that people around me can see I have been in the presence of God.  How about you?
I pray everyone has a GREAT and BLESSED day.
